But i display it as a string with the function proto_tree_add_uint_format_value

Don't do that.

Instead, display it as a string and a number by doing

static const value_string event_type_vals[] = {
    { 0,       "Start" },
    { 1,       "Stop" },
    { 0, NULL },


{ &hf_EventType,
    { "Event Type", "rtcp_stats.event_type", FT_UINT8, BASE_DEC,
       VALS(event_type_vals), 0x0, NULL, HFILL }  }

and just add it to the protocol tree with

proto_tree_add_item(rtcp_stats_tree, hf_EventType, tvb,
    nOffset, 1, ENC_NA);

and let the Wireshark dissector core do the work of showing it as a string for you.

That will also allow doing


in a packet-matching expression.
